Rolling Ridge Neighborhood Association Minutes
September 10, 2002
First I'd like to apologize for the lack of minutes from our last meeting on May the 13th. Since we were without a scribe to actually take written notes I thought I'd relay on my trusty old minicoder. Well needless to say it is old and not so trusty anymore. I did try to pull as much as possible from memory, but that to is less than perfect. Folks while I'd like to say this won't happen again I
can't promise that. We need help in this area.
That leads me to my point…..ANY help you can offer WILL BE APPREACITED. You don't have to be an “official” member of the board to assist. We simply need volunteers to “do a little bit” each, rather than 2 or 3 who do it all….any takers?
Now back to the minutes.

Location: Peter Piper Pizza
Call to order
Tom Conner, our association president called the meeting of the RRNA was to order at 7:02 pm.
He began by extending a big thanks to everyone for showing up tonight.
Tom then presented a Certificate of Appreciation to Rodney Howard, former president of the association.
Unfortunately Tom had to inform the homeowners present that he was unable to share minutes with them from last meeting due to technical problems encountered during the last association meeting.
Diane was called on to deliver the Treasurer report and she also presented the budget. She presented expenses dating from May 13-September 10, 2002. Tom next discussed the proposed increase in dues. This would move us from $15.00 a year to $20.00 a year.
The increase was mainly projected to help with the upkeep of the Rolling Ridge Monuments at the front of the subdivision. Tom did ask for volunteers that might be willing to assist with upkeep of the monument and landscaping assistance as an alternative to raising association dues. In a unanimous vote homeowners passed the increase to $20.00 a year.
Residents were told that the block captains will be collecting dues starting in October.
Tom then stressed the importance of becoming members of the neighborhood association.
Tom shared that we are still in need of members for the executive committee. The positions are Vice President (now filled!) and Secretary. He also shared that Johnese Evans has officially accepted the Activity Chair position which was open. Additionally one of our new neighbors Michael Friedman decided to take the Vice Presidents position on the spot!
Please join us in welcoming these 2 folks to their new positions.
We went on to discuss the surveys. We asked homeowners to take one and fill it out so we can get their feedback.
Phil and Tom discussed the fee structure for advertisements in the neighborhoods newsletter. Homeowners were encouraged to visit the table in the back and pick-up a flyer explaining the entire fee structure for members and non-members.
Take one boxes
Phil showed homeowners the new clear information boxes which will house the newsletters and others important flyers. These boxes will be placed near each mailbox only when there is a new newsletter or other important neighborhood business.
When you see the boxes please check them for the latest information.
Phil and Tom also explained that the newsletter can also be found online for those who prefer this viewing option.
Tom reminded those present the Christmas lights competition will be judged by the local fire department, and there will be 1st and 2nd place winners each receiving a restaurant gift certificate.
September 11th remembrance
One of the children asked if the neighborhood would be doing anything special in memory of September 11, 2002. The answer unfortunately was "no", however Phil encouraged everyone to come to the Dell Diamond that evening where the City of Round Rock was holding a special event. He pointed out that flyers were available on the back table with a schedule of events for that evening.
Neighborhood Crime Watch
Lastly, Tom passed the microphone on to Sgt Pierce the representative of the Round Rock Police Department who had come out to discuss the Neighborhood Crime Watch with the homeowners. Sergeant Pierce was assisted by Officer Rey Rodriguez.
Details about the watch will be disseminated by the newly elected block captains as it becomes available. See the note above.
